Local nonprofits awarded more than $1.2M in new Flexible Funding grants

The PATH Foundation is happy to announce the recipients of our newest grant cycle: Flexible Funding. 38 organizations received more than $1.2M in funding to support their missions and strengthen the health and vitality of everyone in our community.

The Flexible Funding grant cycle, introduced in January 2021, offered up to $75,000 in unrestricted general operating support for 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations. As unrestricted funds, the awards can be used as needed for nonprofits to meet their missions.

The funding cycle is designed to prioritize organizations and populations that are most in need.

“Rather than our traditional annual grant cycles, this year we pivoted to Flexible Funding to address the continuing need our community faces after more than a year of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Christy Connolly, President and CEO of the PATH Foundation. “We believe these grants will empower our grantees to work towards their missions, and make this a great place to live, work, play and grow—for everyone.”

All grantees have overall mission statements or ongoing programs that intersect with the PATH Foundation’s four priority areas: Access to Health, Childhood Wellness, Mental Health and Senor Services. In addition, all grantees demonstrated their alignment with the mission and values of the PATH Foundation.

The full list of Flexible Funding grant recipients is below. To learn more about available PATH Foundation grants, please visit Our Grants page. A full list of PATH Foundation grantees can also be found with our grant search function.
